The Human Proteome Project (HPP)
The microbiota world seen with the eyes of metaproteomics
By:Bruno Tilocca and Paola Roncada, HUPO B/D-HPP Food and Nutrition Team, University Magna Græcia of Catanzaro, Catanzaro, Italy
The animal gastrointestinal tract provides the perfect milieu for hosting the heterogeneous ensemble of microorganisms (bacteria, virus, fungi and protozoa) that are commonly harbored in the intestine. Here, microbiota members establish a complex and intricate network of interconnections among each other and the hosting organism. Recent investigations unveiled the importance of understanding the synergistic interactions between the host and its microbiota, enlightening how the fine orchestration of the gut microbiota composition and activity impact a variety of biochemical and physiological processes that are, in turn, responsible for both beneficial and detrimental health conditions in humans and animals.

2nd Westlake Symposium for Clinical Mass Spectrometry on December 4, 2020 - Progresses and Perspectives of Mass Spectrometry-based Clinical Proteomics

Co-chairs: Steve Pennington, Fuchu He and Tiannan GUO Supported by Westlake University, CN-HUPO, and HUPO

The rapidly developing field of high throughput mass spectrometry-based proteomics is indispensable for precision medicine, however, its penetration into clinic has yet to prevail. On Friday 4th December the 2nd Westlake Symposium for Clinical Mass Spectrometry on Progresses and Perspectives of Mass Spectrometry-based Clinical Proteomics will gather experts from clinical medicine, proteomics and beyond with a goal of building a comprehensive view of the MS-based clinical proteomics landscape: the current status and the perspective for future development. The Symposium will address technical issues such as high throughput proteomic analysis of clinical specimens from (multi-center) cohort studies and integrative analysis of proteomics data with clinical and other omics data.
